23rd September 2011 – The Zzub Chart… A different kind of Buzz!
1 (14) SPECTOR – WHAT YOU WANTED – LUV LUV LUV
Jangly sing a long typically English pop, bringing Frankie & The Heartstrings and The Killers to mind.
2 (1) WE WERE PROMISED JETPACKS – MEDICINE – FAT CAT
Epic post punk power pop with substance. If The Ruts, Doves and The Vaccines got together…
3 (5) APPARAT – THE DEVIL’S WALK – MUTE
A stunning LP of rich sombre ethereal textures soaring above deep pools of warm bass, creating emotionally absorbing atmospherics to get lost in and vocals that are a touch Thom Yorke. It’ll blow you away.
4 (12) THE TRAVELLING BAND – SUNDIAL XXMI – COOKING VINYL
Now a festival anthem and set for a well deserved re-release. Inspiring.
5 (6) THE KENNETH BAGER EXPERIENCE – THE SOUNDS OF… –DECONSTRUCTION
The Danish pioneer returns with a pop dance bonanza, including top collaborations with Thomas Troelson, Julee Cruise and Aloe Blacc.
6 (NEW) DENNIS HOPPER CHOPPERS – GIRL WALKED OUT OF TOWN –
Another fine slice of dusk til dawn Americana. Lifted from their excellent LP Be Ready.
7 (NEW) THE JAPANESE POPSTARS – TAKE FOREVER – VIRGIN
The lipstick king Robert Smith soars over pulsing gothic disco. Attaque comes up trumps on the remix front, delivering wall climbing take no prisoners techno.
